We were able to hand in a petition of over 8,500 signatures before the Consultation deadline. But that doesn’t mean things have stopped, or are stopping.
Please fill in a couple of details about you at https://goo.gl/forms/rBuAqwBI0g5LOiFE3, so we stand a chance of sending you our occasional messages that are more relevant to you.
Also, if you are in/near/passing through Bedford next Monday (6th), please do come along to the AGM of the Bedford Commuters Assoication which will be held at 7.30 pm on Mon at The RAFA Club, 93 Ashburnham Road. See http://bedfordcommuters.org.uk/
This could be really important for the SaveOurTrains campaign. It is vitally important for us that we get Bedford Commuters Assoication to work more cooperatively/enthusiastically to ensure the train service we need is provided by the new franchise. Lots of voices making that clear at the meeting would be VERY welcome.
To get there Next Monday, when you leave Bedford Station turn Left. The RAFA Club is located 100 Yards up Ashburnham Road on the right. Their website is clear – Everyone welcome. Free Entry
The photo is an example of the sort of ongoing campaigning that we are promoting/encouraging over the next part of the campaign. A cross-party delegation of five MPs from constituencies served by four different stations went to talk to the Rail Minister to make sure he heard what their constituents (us) have been telling them. We need to work now to make sure more MPs, as well as employers/businesses/councils are passing the right messages on to the Rail Minister, while he has time to work out what a better franchise specification would be!
